A contemporary experiential art exhibit featuring artists from throughout North Carolina will be held April 13 in the historic Giles Motors building at 202 S. Sterling St. in downtown Morganton.
Titled ART/RE/ART, the “visual extravaganza is a free, one-night only event held in a non-art space and offers an alternative way to interact with and experience art in the community,” said Nancy VanNoppen, event organizer.
“It will feature local and regional artists from Asheville to Durham,” VanNoppen said. “ART/RE/ART will include work from multiple disciplines and mediums, including performance, sculpture, interactive, video, painting, drawing and photography.”
VanNoppen received her master’s of fine arts in 2017 from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and her bachelor’s of art degree from Hollins University in Roanoke, Va. in 2012. She was awarded an artist residency at ArtSpace in Raleigh in the summer of 2012. Her work has been displayed throughout North Carolina.
Currently, VanNoppen is the creative director at Morganton-based VanNoppen Marketing, an 18-year-old full-service marketing agency.
“ART/RE/ART is a one-night only pop up art show emphasizing contemporary art experiences,” VanNoppen said. “Based on the 10 to 15 artists who have already committed, it will be awesome.”
Open to the public and free of charge, ART/RE/ART will be held from 5-9 p.m. Visit www.instagram.com/art_re_art/ for more information.
